I was nervous.
You’d been in your mama’s belly for so long. I was walking down the hallway, wondering how to be with you, hold you, love you. I saw you, scooped you up. An unkown ventricle in my heart opened and a new flavor of love erupted through me.
When I woke up, Lara said I’d been laughing. I remembered the warm weight of you, so important and tiny. You saw wonder in my face. I saw the explosion of a timeless universe, which now had you in it.
I loved you in a dream, my daughter. One day.
